Team17 and Astral Pixel have launched magnetic puzzle-platformer Super Magbot on PC and Nintendo Switch.
The debut title from Astral Pixel, Super Magbot sees players guide the robotic Magbot as he tries to save his home planet of MagTek from the peril tearing through the planetary system of Magnetia. Although incapable of jumping, Magbot is armed with powerful magnetic abilities that help him traverse the many traps, platforms, and enemies he’ll encounter throughout the galaxy.
What’s unique about this puzzle-platformer game is that there’s technically no traditional jumping. Players will have to figure out how to solve each level via their magnetic abilities.
Super Magbot Features:
- Harness magnetic power: Answer MagTek’s call for help, and use the power of magnets to traverse through dozens of puzzle-filled levels brought to life in colourful 16-bit retro visuals.
- Unlock secrets: Find Star Fragments throughout the gameworld that hide further secrets along the way and add an extra layer of difficulty to Magbot’s adventure.
- Attract or repel competitors: Global leaderboards showcase each level’s best times as players rise to the challenge to save the Magnetia system.
- Assist Modes: Swap the frantic action for a relaxed puzzle experience with a mix of infinite colour charges, endless air time and mid-level checkpoints.
